My Memorial Fountain
Toby was my LOVE. He had to do everything with me from following me into the bathroom to typing on the computer, to anything and everything I did. He slept by my side purring until I went to sleep or he did. He was so special to me. I really had no clue that anything was really wrong with him. I made an appointment for the Vet to take a look at him because he just wasn't acting like himself, but he died the day before his appointment. The way he died just tore me up. When I came home from an appointment he was literally hanging off of one of the cat perches by the window in the kitchen like he tried to jump up there and didn't make it but got his claws hung up and couldn't get down either. When I came home I found him hanging there. I can't ever remember "scream/crying" before. Even when my dad passed. But this time I did. I sat on the floor holding him and rocking and "scream/crying" for a long long time. Now I'm crying again because I can't stand to think of him dying that way, all alone.
I am so very sorry for your loss of your beloved Toby. Your memorial fountain is beautiful, and a wonderful representation of your love for him. May you always carry him in your heart.
